Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17

by Yehoshua ben Moshe

Shalom Aleichem,
We commence this D'Var Torah by focusing upon the title of the Parashat. The title of the Parashat is RE'EH. The Hebrew transliteration of RE'EH is interpreted to mean "SEE". The Sidrah starts out with the idea of entering into the LAND OF THE CANAANITES and how to respond to BLESSINGS and CURSES. From the PERSPECTIVE OF MISHKHAN DAVID there is a HIGHER MEANING to these descriptions being given that Echad wants us to COMPREHEND. G-d uses blessings to PUSH us FORWARD or in other words, give us the EMPOWERMENT to do what we are purpose to do. OUR CORPORATE PURPOSE is to reach the Goal of Creation. The Goal of Creation is to become LIKE THE CREATOR, for it is written, "And God said, "Let us make Man in Our image, after Our likeness." Gen. 1:26. This didn't happen in one instance, but is a PROCESS. This process is liken unto EVOLUTION where the right amount of RESHIMO (PRESSURE) will be placed upon all humanity over a period of time that will aid us in the EVOLUTION of becoming LIKE HIM. G-d does not die. The very soul that is in our physical Bodies does not. What dies is our PHYSICAL BODY at this current state, but a time comes (which is now) where the physical Body will no longer die off but will MANIFEST HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESSES. Not even the Image of Echad dies. So when we look at the Torah portion RE'EH there are some important steps being shown on how to Ascend pass the MACHSOM (THE BARRIER) into the Land of Canaan or PURE SOUL CONSCIOUS where PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY is obtained. The first thing to look at is that once the ASCENSION is made that there are still LEVELS OF ATTAINMENT to be made. The Desires that are in our Heart has to undergo TRANSFORMATION that is to turn all the 613 DESIRES into the INTENTION OF G-D. Divine Intent=Israel and the Nations= wordly Desires, IN THE ROOT LANGUAGE. All the Nations must be destroyed and become Israel. The prophet Jeremiah speaks about it in part, "But as for you, do not fear, My servant Jacob, the word of Hashem, and do not be afraid, Israel; for behold, I am saving you from distant places, and your descendants from the land of their captivity, and Jacob will return and be at peace and tranquil, and none will make [him] afraid. For I am with you - the word of Hashem - to save you; for I will bring annihilation upon all the nations among whom I have dispersed you, but upon you I will not bring annihilation; I will chastise you with Justice, but I will never eliminate you completely." Jeremiah. 30:10-11. The CURSES are used to guide us back on the PATH. The Blessings are to be EXPECTED and not focused on. Once you cross the barrier you become more CONSCIOUS of BLESSINGS and CURSES. "It shall be that if you hearken to the voice of HASHEM, your God, to observe, to perform all of His commandments that I command you this day, then HASHEM, your God, will make you supreme over all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you, if you hearken to the voice of HASHEM, your God..." Debt. 28:1-2 This is saying to us that we should be FRUITFUL IN OUR UNDERTAKING . Echad, that is the G-d of Israel is doing nothing BUT pouring out UNBOUND BLESSINGS upon us anyway, so it is just a matter of us positioning ourselves in such away to EXPERIENCE IT. Most of the time we are not experiencing it because of INCORRECT PERCEPTION. We create for ourselves IDOLS OF THE MIND in our INCORRECT PERCEPTION. In other words, if we start to look at everything as being G-D and that He is only doing GOOD to us then we can move into this CORRECT PERCEPTION where upon staying there we will discover in this, DIVINE INTENTION. That it that everything even what we perceive as challenges are there for us to RESPOND TO and overcome the challenge (which may feel like a curse) and EXPERIENCE THE BLESSING behind it. It was predetermined for the nation’s to bring their wealth, "Then you will see and be radiant, your heart will be startled and broadened, for the affluence of the West will be turned over to you, and the wealth of nations will come to you." Isaiah 60:5 This further illustrates the Blessing aspect even in Corporeal things in order to aid us in aiding the rest of the world into realization and actualization of PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY.
